A Very Special Café

Peace valley

Donnamarie Davis, Esquire, vice president of the Peace Valley Holistic Center in Chalfont, is busy putting the finishing touches on her vision to expand their already considerable services to autistic children and their families to include a very special café. She has embarked on creating a Mentor/Work-based Learning Program in the form of a coffee and ice-cream Café designed for youths 18-28 with Autism, ADHD, Down syndrome, and other Special Needs. The 1,600 square foot County property (formerly the Bucks County, PA Crime Lab) is in the process of being repurposed and transformed into a coffee and ice-cream café, in Middletown Township. Two to five at risk Special Needs Individuals will help operate this café, which will be open to the public. The participating youths will receive job placement assistance, as well as interview skill-coaching, after completing the program. Participating Individuals will learn how to work as a team in a small business setting, learning the skills required to run the back of the café and serving the public in the front of the café, in a fun, supportive, and friendly setting. The goal is to open the café by this summer. There are seven unions all donating their time for this project. The materials and equipment are not provided, that’s why we need donations. Starbucks has donated used equipment. But, they still need a freezer, a POS system, an ice-cream cabinet, and an ice-maker. The biggest need and most crucial need for the center right now is a roof. Peace Valley Holistic Center is located at 224 Old Limekiln Road, Chalfont, PA 18914. For interest in being a volunteer or in donating to the several needs of the new café, please call PVHC at 215-887-9901. For more information, visit www.peacevalleyholisticcenter.org.
